Window didn't close properly, and it was the middle of winter in rainy Melbourne so that was a big low point. Also we arrived at 2am and there was a distinctive smell of marijuana through our corridor, and around the attendant that let us in. Also this was definitely not a budget price compared to what we have paid elsewhere... More

No need for a photo. Imagine a dressed up prison cell with some comfort built-in. If you have ever stayed in Paris and experienced a every good one star hotel, then this ticks all the boxes, except for ambience. This is the most basic Ibis I have ever stayed at (guess that's why they call it Budget), but it provided... More

Very disappointing. Requested a smokefree room because of a current bout of pneumonia. Room was clean however residual smoke penetrates blankets and is just as bad. A sign to say 'extra cleaning charged if you smoke in this room' does not cut it in 2016

Pros- great location, easy to access by public transport, friendly staff, breakfast very nice, entertainment and shopping only metres away. Cons- broken door, lights don't work properly, the bunk bed wasn't made ready for check in, tiny bathroom (smaller than a closet)

My shower was getting replaced, so I needed somewhere local literally just to shower while I stayed at home - so I didn't even use the bed. The check in was easy, but the corridors smelled like smoke and there was no shampoo or conditioner. The shower walls and crevices were discoloured, but I;m not sure if it was just... More

This stay was let down by the maintenance in the hotel. The heater did not work on hot upon our return later in the evening. The tap was loose on the washbasin and the fridge did not work having defrosted itself and being full of water. Added to this the roof was leaking in the corridor the next morning and... More

Despite being quite far out of town, this is a decent budget hotel. Also previous reviews have stated that there's no wifi, this isn't the case - there's free wifi with a good reception in all rooms. I found my room and bathroom clean, fully stocked, the breakfast nice and good working laundry facilities too. ($4 for washer, $4 for... More

Ibis Budget hotels (often former Formule 1 sites) are unpretentious and decent value. Ibis Budget Fawkner is no different. It's well located for driving, being on the corner of Sydney Road and the Western Ring Road. Rooms are typical of this chain: functional, spartan, but perfectly fine. The bathrooms are utilitarian, preformed cubicles that will be familiar to anyone who... More

This hotel is shocking do yourself a favour and do not stay there, room tiny and road and rail noise all night, so called kitchen is a tiny room with filthy cupboards and a filthy cooker I don't think its been cleaned in months. The breakfast is not worth the money and everything is on plastic plates and polystyrene cups... More
